The road is closed 3 miles from the trailhead. Me and two buddies decided to hike in anyways, and it was tough. The road was washed out in several places pretty bad, hence the closure. We're in our early twenties and were dying just getting to the trailhead due to carrying stuff to camp for several days, which then got significantly worse once we reached the actual trail. The whole area has burned also. This made the trail extremely difficult to follow in places.By the lake there are a few spots that didn't burn, but 90% of the area has. We saw elk tracks and caught 3 brook trout in the lake, but that was about it as far as animals. We also woke up to a few inchea of snow, so we waited for it to melt and then hiked out a day earlier than planned. The whole place has a pretty creepy feeling due to the lack of insects or birds. I would give it a few years to grow back before doing it again. Just a heads up.

The hike up to the lake was rough, there's no sugar coating it. It's entirely uphill and extremely steep at places. Absolutely worth it once you reach the lake, though. We spent 3 days up there camping and fishing and not a single person came through.
